December greetings from hopes you are all keeping warm and safe. With snow descending on many parts of the UK and France, it’s looking decidedly wintry out there. Time for some shopping maybe?

With the number of Christmas Markets around the Languedoc, there’s something to suit every taste. If you fancy something a bit unusual, maybe a visit to Chateau Grezon, home of Marie France Lanson would be a good start. Madame Lanson’s fair of ‘Les Petits Trouvailles’ brings a great variety of hand crafted gift ideas together at her family home. Perhaps the foie gras fair at Castelnaudary is more up your street? Not forgetting of course the range of events organised by the winemakers around Béziers. Click here for a PDF of what’s going on. Christmas Fairs, Line Dancing and ‘Le Son du Swing’ are also listed in the What’s On Calendar.

Fairview Coffee in Montpellier opens it’s doors on the 2nd of December, with a great selection of perfectly brewed teas, and some utterly delicious coffees. Get a special launch discount voucher here.

But it’s business as usual in the Directory, so from house security to satellite TV, weekend breaks to a new fitted kitchen, keep an eye on this website to find up to date listings for an English speaking business, supplier or service in the Languedoc-Roussillon region.

And whatever you get up to, have a great December !
